TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Jakarta Metro Police have launched an e-ticketing system dubbed Electronic Traffic Law Enforcement (E-TLE) on Transjakarta lanes today, December 5. The launching is marked by the operation of two special CCTV units on the bus lanes located on Jalan Sudirman and MH Thamrin.
“E-TLE on these roads are installed by the assistance of city governor and staffers, as well as city legislative council,” said Jakarta Police chief Insp. Gen. Gatot Eddy Pramono during the launching event at the police headquarters, Thursday, December 5.
Gatot explained the installation of the cameras is the collaboration between the police and PT Transjakarta. Another 12 CCTV units will later be set to monitor users of the special bus lanes.
“Those entering Transjakarta lanes will be captured. [This policy] will help to sterilize the lanes,” said Gatot, adding that the system is equipped with vehicle recognition feature.
The feature could detect vehicles other than the city buses that are passing the designated bus lanes and report the violation to the police’s traffic management center (NTMC) operator. The information will then be forwarded to the officers in the location to take action.
By this policy, Gatot hoped people will divert their private vehicles and go to public transportation following tighter regulations and congested roads which increasingly dense.
The launching event of the e-ticketing system was attended by Jakarta governor Anies Baswedan, Police chief Gen. Idham Azis, and Police Traffic Directorate Unit chief Insp. Gen. Istiono.
